I've noticed that whenever I get my grades back from essays I've done, I always get marked down on structure. My knowledge is good though.
So I was wondering if anyone's doing the same essay as me right now and has any tips on how to structure it? I'm supposed to use sources and argue their points as wel

Have a clear idea on the view of your essay. Was Stalin significant in the short term? Was it that he was economically significant but didn't make an impact on culture (I have no idea if he was or not, but hopefully you do)
Be clear about what the view of you essay is in your introduction, and crucially keep it throughout the essay. This will help you keep to a structure and give a better flow to your writing.
A 2 part structure (view of essay) is normally good for essays, ie: I really enjoyed that film, but thought the directors last film was better. or Stalin was very significant however exogenous factors greatly boosted his significance. If you're relating all your points of one part of the structure through your essay it should be analytical.
I would speak to your teacher and ask what they are actually looking for in terms or structure. Maybe its to do with your paragraphing? Make sure you're linking them together, not covering too much or too little in one paragraph. Good luckLast edited by dean01234; 26-01-2016 at 21:30.
